The magic of Charles Dickens’ heart-warming classic like you’ve never seen it before! Michael Wilson returns to collaborate with Director Maxwell Williams as we freshen up the show for the 50th Anniversary Season. Select redesigned costumes, enhanced special effects and dazzling new lighting will bring new life to the holiday classic that has thrilled more than 250,000 families for the past 15 years. Come see Connecticut’s favorite family holiday tradition and spend some time with Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim, Ebenezer Scrooge, Jacob Marley and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future as they bring A Christmas Carol to life on stage. It’s perfect holiday entertainment!


“Round of applause to Noble Shropshire, who as Jacob Marley does some spectacular high-flying maneuvering – and acting – amid more clouds of dry ice that could shroud the banks of London.”

“Beloved and haunting holiday classic gets some new bows and ribbons – and some cool scary effects.” 

“More than a quarter of a million people have laughed, cried and been moved by Bill Raymond’s dastardly, delightful and heart-filled Scrooge.”
